English conductor Christopher Seaman is renowned for his long and distinguished career leading orchestras here and abroad. At the invitation of Joseph Giunta, he leads the Symphony in Petrouchka. You’ll hear the strains of Russian folk songs and dazzling melodies in this historic collaboration between Stravinsky and Diaghilev at the Ballet Russes. But first, violinist Simone Porter returns to Des Moines by popular demand to play Sibelius’s brilliant, impassioned Violin Concerto. Her rendition of this virtuosic work will take your breath away.
